'STATIC STEPHEN' - (2015)
Format: 35mm (Kodak) / DCP
Director: Luke Bellis
Production Company: Mindseye
During a not-so-uncommon spat with his older brother, young Stephen has a vision in which he harnesses a huge amount of static electricity and finally gets his own back on his bullying sibling. Determined to put this vision into practice, Stephen sets out to generate as much static as he can muster, and journeys throughout the house until he comes face-to-face with his arch-nemesis. Does Stephen now have what it takes to confront his older sibling once and for all?
'Static Stephen' is a warm, playful short project, which takes inspiration from a number of sources.
